Everyone is familiar with ebay, right? Well now we would like to introduce you to our Viva Des Moines Online Auctions. We offer you everything ebay offers it's buyers and sellers but without all the hassle.
Whether you are buying or selling, you are dealing locally. Think of how much you could save on shipping costs alone. Buyers can have the option to pick-up their winnings and/or sellers can enhance their listings by offering to deliver sold items locally. And since everyone within our auction community is dealing basically with their neighbors, there is never a need to worry about one being duped or scammed.
Our auctions offer everyone a safe way to buy and sell their goods locally. Great way to sell your crafts, garage/yard sale left-overs, your bake goods, Girl Scout Cookies, or whatever.
Fundraisers, charity groups, churches, schools and all non profit groups use our auctions for FREE. Contact us for more info on how you can use our auctions and reach your desired goals.
Have you ever dreamed about being able to make a little extra money so you could fix up the house a bit? Buy that new riding lawn mower? Maybe a better car? We've all been there. Maybe you have a bigger dream in mind? Perhaps you have aspirations of wanting to have your own business? Be your own boss?
Our online auctions may be just the platform that you need. We have staff members whom used to be Power Sellers on ebay. Gave it up years ago when the selling fees got to a ridiculous level.
The point is, we can help you get started in reaching any of the goals you may have in mind. We will also help you on your road to success. Offer you Free advise whenever you need it. Contact us.
You see hundreds of garage and/or yard sales every year. Everything sold at these types of sales can be easily sold within our online auctions. Are you good at wood crafts? Other crafts? Baking? Sewing? Are you an artist? Have furniture or are you planning a moving sale?
Business owners, why not use our auctions as another avenue to sell your wares?
Honestly, if you're a business owner already and in retail, our auctions could truly give you a one-up over your competiters. You may say you don't have the staff or have the time. Then how about creating a position and hiring someone? Offering jobs also helps the economy. Plus, this can be done from someone's home.
And as a business owner, don't you feel that once a buyer (auction winner) from one of your auctions stops into your place of business to pick up their winnings, don't you think that there is a chance that they would do extra shopping because they are already in your place of business?
